Ryan’s Experience

Who the heck is this guy? Why should I listen?

I have over 30,000 hours and counting of studying the literature and schooling, along with practical experience.

With a degree in Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation, and nutrition sciences I’ve worked in the hospital caring for cardiac patients, the fitness space, and in wholistic medicine helping people with gut and hormone health.

I’m a Certified Immune Centric Health coach which is the most advanced biohacking certification on the market.

I’m a Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist Practitioner. That means I can run and interpret functional medicine labs that help identify the root cause of disease and disorders, along with healing opportunities in your gut, and with your hormones like cortisol, estrogen and testosterone.

I have over 21 years of experience as a natural bodybuilder, maintain sub 10% body fat year round, I am completely medication and performance enhancing drug-free and always have been.

I’ve tried all the fads, protocols, toys modalities, and diets out there so I’m very experienced. I know their benefits and I know where these benefits all hit a hard stop. My entire life has been dedicated to achieving optimized health as a foundation to a great looking physique.

I have ample amounts of energy. I’m up at 3:30am most mornings and don’t stop until 8:00 pm with 4 kids.

@ 40 years old, 220 pounds and 6’1’’ I have a 1 minute 400M sprint, I can dunk a basketball, and do pullups with 110 pounds strapped to my waist, I run a mile in 6 minutes, amongst other high level performance feats.

Lastly and perhaps most importantly, I have a track record of proven results.

My name is Ryan Stoner, certified Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist Practitioner,  certified Immune-centric Health Coach, ex-bodybuilder of some 20 years, and ex-personal trainer to hundreds of people.  I received my degree in Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation and Exercise Physiology.  I’ve analyzed and can reference some 200 plus scientific research papers on gut health, detoxification, fat loss, muscle building, flexibility and longevity.  I didn’t study the literature blindly as I am fully aware that science, while one of our greatest tools, is simply data and has many accounts of being misleading for a plethora of reasons. I am a physiology rebel with real life practical experience who questions tradition to keep on the cutting edge of treatment and advising.

I know what it feels like to spin your tires with your health, to fail where you were once succeeding.

To make a long story short after spending thousands of hours and dollars researching, obsessively learning, and experimenting with everything I could about gut health and health in general, after getting labs done I discovered a straightforward pathway to healing and optimization.

Here are some of the indicators you may be experiencing:

  • You don’t tolerate food well
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Chronic bloating
  • Acne or skin issues
  • Autoimmunity
  • Anxiety
  • Brain fog
  • Sugar or carb cravings
  • Weight gain
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Weak immunity

Once I was able to determine the root cause of my issues through lab-work, I was finally able to heal and optimize my health.  I was finally able to return to balance and resiliency. 

I started STŌN Functional Nutrition because I know there are many people who live with similar unresolved issues and symptoms, who want healing and balance.  But more truthfully my work goes beyond that, not just healing but optimizing. 

By sharing the culmination of my life’s experiences and studies it is my mission to guide people into their best health and fitness and sustain it for their entire lives.  At STŌN Functional Nutrition I help people look, move and feel their best by utilizing approaches based on how the human body actually works.  Not just any human body, but your individual body.  I am confident and endeavor to make working with me a positive life-changing experience.
